Frequently Asked Questions

Yes all first year students need to complete the Create your Future programme. 

We are committed to making this programme as accessible as possible to students in other time zones or those with caring responsibilities. If you are not able to make all or part of the day, then please contact createyourfuture@exeter.ac.uk to discuss alternative arrangements. 

All of the live workshops are taking place on Zoom. 

The online activities can be accessed via your personalised Create your Future page on MyCareerZone.  

You can join the first live workshop by clicking the link on your iExeter timetable. Alternatively, click the event in the Workshop 1 section at the top of this page, and the link will be on this event. 

If you are having trouble accessing the workshop, then please email createyourfuture@exeter.ac.uk.  

You will have been automatically booked on to the 1st and 3rd workshop. The 2nd workshop is tailored to you based on the stage you are at in your career planning, and so you will need to book on to the workshop that is most relevant to you. 

You will be invited to book on to the 2nd workshop during the 1st workshop. Alternatively, you can book on to this workshop on your personalised Create Your Future page.  

Throughout the day, there will be staff available to support you as you are working through the online activities. At the start of the day, you will be sent two live chat links to use for support with each of the following: 

  • Practical support – accessing online content, booking and joining workshops etc 
  • Advice, guidance and support from careers professionals on any aspect of the content of the day

Please email createyourfuture@exeter.ac.uk in advance to let us know which part of the day you have a clash with. We will discuss with you how you can access this part of the day at another time.
